It's Spring! Enjoy Every Moment!


Spring makes me think of flowers. I'm not much of a gardener so I have to rely on my stamping skills to create a garden.
This stamp set is called Enjoy Every Moment and includes the three images you see here. The detail in these flowers are beautiful and works well with a variety of techniques.
The top card of Morning Glories was done with watercolor pencils and a water pen. The Daisies has a touch of color added with a water pen. Finally, the Calla Lillies was done with a water pen and markers. 


After I created the cards with color I wanted to try a black and white version. I've used my Cuttlebug to emboss over the stamped image. This technique is from the TJ Emboss or Die CD.  I've used a variety of embellishements: pleated ribbon, Kraft Color Ready Borders and Licorice Opaques.  These cards are clean, simple and it makes the images really pop.

All cards are 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" except for the Yellow Daisy card which is 8" x 3 1/3".

Good luck creating your own gardens...whatever kind they may be!

Thanks for stopping by!
